A village, a boatyard and a marina #4

You may recall that yesterday I asked you to remember the, apparently stranded, sailboat in this photograph. I said that we’d return to it as the tide came in. The boat is facing the boatyard gates and I am standing behind it.

In the next shot, I’m standing with my back to the boatyard gates, facing the same sailboat, but notice how the incoming tide had risen slightly up the channel. Notice also the small boat ‘Lola’ on the bank, behind and to the left of the sailboat.

In this next image, I’ve selected ‘Lola’ to look at so that you can see how the tide is now filling the channel that runs along the side of the estuary.

In this final shot of the first set, you can see both ‘Lola’ and the sailboat, now fully afloat. The tide has rescued the ‘stranded’ vessels and they are now ready for use again. I’ll conclude this visit to Heswall with a couple more sequences like this. You’ll be able to see what’s happening without any further commentary from me.

We, that’s it for our visit to Heswall Boatyard. In my next post, we’ll drive on to our final photo-destination for the day – West Kirby. I hope that you enjoyed today’s visit.

For my Featured Photo, I include a, slightly different, view of the blue sailboat from the second sequence that I posted earlier.

EXIF Data were: I used my Fujifilm X-T4, 26 MP, cropped-sensor, mirrorless camera paired with a Fujinon XF 16-55 mm f/2.8 lens. Shutter speed was 1/50 secs @ f/11 and 29.2 mm. ISO was 400.
